“After the tragic sequence of 9/11 and the Iraq War, this way of telling American history had become so habitual among some scholars that when a Harvard undergraduate, Pete Buttigieg wrote in his 2004 senior thesis . . .” thenation.com/article/archiv…
“ . . . that ‘the very founding of America was an act of international intervention . . . which would recur in later years with America’s exportation of its democratic creed,’ he was repeating an academic dogma.” —So creepy.
George Bush's post-September 11th strategy was the Puritan rhetoric of covenant renewal where 2nd and 3rd generation Puritans were brought into the church. Bush implored younger Americans to uphold the national covenant of their “elders” through support of the war on terrorism.
Following the terrorist attacks of September 11th, the FBI found that anti-Muslim sentiments spiked and verifiable, religiously motivated hate crimes against Muslims in the U.S. increased 1,600% in 2001 from the prior year.
In fact, the FBI, which has tracked hate crimes since 1992, reports that Anti-Muslim hate crimes had previously been the second-least reported. But in 2001, they became the second-highest reported, second only to anti-Jewish hate crimes.

For over a thousand years, Christianity was one unified faith. Then in 1054 the Roman Catholic Church split from the original Orthodox Christian Church which is today referred to as “Eastern,” whereas the Catholic Church is “Western,” which split again in 1517 with Martin Luther.
The three branches (Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism) share no consistent theology. And only an ignorant person would use “Christianity” as a catch-all for the three. The Orthodox are hugely persecuted and then the Catholics, next. Protestants are not persecuted.
This beatitude comes to mind: “Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall see all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake, rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for a great is your reward in heaven!”

Nobody saw this coming (sarcasm). The Jewish oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, part of the Atlantic Council network of Zionist global criminals, created that now-Nazi hate group. And @AtlanticCouncil moderates Facebook. What a shit show, America!
From a distant mirror we see that some very wealthy Jews were unquestionably involved in creating the conditions for the Holocaust. 😉 @SimonClark1965

“Disaster is rarely as pervasive as it seems from recorded accounts. The fact of being on the record makes it appear continuous and ubiquitous whereas it is more likely to have been sporadic both in time and place.”

Omg 🤣🤣🤣 The Zionist technocrats are going to rule the country, don’t you know? Lolz. 112.international/politics/twitt…
Crypto-Zionism fosters the clandestine networking of the elite and the exclusive exchange of insider information. We call this technology, or the application of scientific knowledge in industry.
Problem is, the Zionists are complete morons and got busted due to their total incompetence.

The first Jews to settle in Britain were forbidden by the Church to own land, employ Christians or bear arms. At the same time, Christians were forbidden to lend money for interest therefore money-lending —finance— became an industry for British Jews. sephardi.org.uk/history/
As the founders of banking services (and also the pioneers of international business networking), Jews provided credit in a society where there were no banks as we know them today. That was until 1290, when Jews were kicked out of Britain for three hundred years.
After time in Spain and Portugal, Amsterdam became a popular destination for Jews to openly practice their religion. Through the first half of the 17th century, Amsterdam became the world’s leading trading city and the home of a thriving Jewish community.

The Sephardim merchants of Amsterdam in the 17th century as Barbara Tuchman wrote in another context, offer a “distant mirror” that can be held up to the lives and issues faced by minority groups, in general, and Jews, specifically, today.
The ways in which the Sephardim grappled with the surrounding society, tolerance, the blending of cultures, and the limits of assimilation speak strongly to scholars confronting (or refusing to publicly confront, as the case may be) these very same issues in the modern world.
One part of the modern urban experience is social acceptance, and the Sephardic economic elites of Amsterdam in the 17th century were socially and culturally accepted in a way that was unique at that time. Everyday contact between the Sephardim and the Dutch was unremarkable.
